My daughter's Godmother has instructed me my daughter SHOULD be crawling and sitting up at 7 months. This may or may not be true, but I did not appreciate the instructions that she is below her level. I politely said, "everyone has their own way of raising their kids and I appreciate her advice, but my daughter will advance at her age at her own pace." She replied to me that "I always ask for advice and if I don't want it, to not ask for it, because she will ALWAYS tell you whats on her mind."
We are currently not talking and I told her to leave me alone, because she continuously ranted and raved at me through text messages.
Again, I appreciate comments and advice and always welcome it, but if it becomes an issue of my child is not growing at the right level, I will speak my mind as well.
I like my friend and I don't want to lose her friendship, which is what I told her and she replied "if you're going to lose a friend over something like this...thats sad." --- thats when I told her we were both at work and we'll talk about it later. She again- ranted not to ask for advice if I don't want it.
This all stemmed from our meeting yesterday and me accidentally slipping by saying, "what the heck?" and her daughter repeating my words. Apparently I cussed a lot yesterday and she didn't appreciate that. I can completely understand her concern for this, so I apologized twice. I don't really understand a lot of my friends and some times I can almost predict our friendship having trouble (mostly when we hang out too much or we have a conflict of interest). I value everyone I meet and I know everyone has their issues, but I don't find it fair to accuse my daughter of slowly advancing to crawling and sitting up. It really offended me and I did my best to be polite and mature about the situation, but ...I don't know. What are your thoughts? ......
